Do You Know What You Are Drinking?

A startling revelation has been made according to a recent report by the Institute of Public Health with regards to Lahore’s drinking water.

According to the claims of this report, ‘half of Lahore population has been drinking water having faecal contents, and even those living in the so-called posh areas are no exception!’

And this is what they found:

the institute had tested some 92 drinking water samples between May 1 and 15 and found faeces in 43 of them.

Would you believe that!

Defective sewerage system is one of the main reasons of water contamination. Due to defective system, sewage mixes with the water supply lines. The survey suggests that the discharge of industrial effluents into the subsoil through holes should be banned in order to avoid ground water contamination.

So if you are not using bottled water at your homes, be very careful!

    should we ?
    man, bad water may kill us like after 10,000 days…
    but what about the unjustice? it kills us everyday,….

    talk about that man, prioritize your issues, leave water, talk about the f****** “judusary” first.

    PEACE.

    One, learn to spell what you are fighting for at least! It’s JUDICIARY not ‘judusary’

    Two, we HAVE been discussing the affairs of our state at length ever since we started. If only people like you would browse through the blog before ranting in the comments section.

    Three, are you telling us that the lives of people who die everyday on the streets (due to food or water poisoning or heat or any thing else other than injustice) are less important? It is YOU who needs to prioritize your conscience Mr. salman. Where were you when corrupt lawyers, policement, army generals and politicians robbed and killed people for 60 years?

    Water contamination is a very grave issue and we take it seriously. It is about time you should too.

    Sorry if I went off the hook but you had it coming.

    @ Salman, Selina has said enough so I won’t waste my time on you. My only humble request: put down the ‘GO MUSHARRAF GO’, ‘LIBERATE JUDICIARY’, and ‘GEO IS MY GOD’ banners for two minutes and look around you. This dictator, these judges, and this media came only a few years ago but there are grave problems that have plagued our country ever since its inception. Realize them too… only for two minutes. Then you can carry on with your street protests and rants.

    @ parchi, unfotunately not everyone in Pakistan has the financial capacity to purchase mineral water 🙂 I’m sure you know its relatively similar in India too.

    I am shocked! Does our government know about this? What’s the use of any vaccinations when such basic necessities like drinking water are polluted. Half of Lahore! Man!
